The movie is completely different from the book, and is far from being suspenseful like the original story. Arnold, though always charismatic, is miscast in the lead role. He's surrounded by one too many sleazy characters, making you feel as if there's no ray of hope throughout the entire movie. The only really good performance belongs to Richard Dawson (host of Family Feud) as the slimy host of the deadly game show. Compared to other Arnold films, this is far from top draw.
